The Matriarchy of Ppyel is a massive, safe nation, renowned for its keen interest in outer space, digital currency, and irreverence towards religion. The compassionate, democratic population of 1.137 billion Ppyelians love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The enormous government juggles the competing demands of Education, Administration, and Welfare. The average income tax rate is 80.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Ppyelian economy, worth 119 trillion Two-nas a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector, which is quite specialized, is led by the Information Technology industry, with significant contributions from Book Publishing, Tourism, and Beef-Based Agriculture. Average income is an impressive 104,779 Two-nas , and distributed extremely evenly, with practically no difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Unshaven men are viewed with suspicion in courts of law, neon signs promoting safe driving often distract drivers, owning a fishing rod can cause you to be subject to military questioning, and Scoutmasters debate whether luxury log cabins defeat the purpose of camping. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Ppyel's national animal is the Honey Badger, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests.

Ppyel is ranked 163,290th in the world and 8,821st in The North Pacific for Largest Pizza Delivery Sector, scoring -12.66 on the Pepperoni Propulsion Productivity Index.
